    Re: Longitude events in Greenwich in 2014

    Any US friends fancy visiting Greenwich and seeing it at the Holy of Holies? I’m going 19th August but doubled with London hospital appointment, so can’t organise anything unfortunately. Either way, looks to be a good thing either here or US The new Longitude prize is millions and general science based, not longitude for obvious reasons. Should be good though.( I have a feeling the 1714 thing was also “progress in science “ as much as “find the longitude”. Hence the ages it survived on.)What do you all t think?

    What a wonderful thing we are all into!

    With the tercentenary of the 1714 Longitude Act almost upon us, Royal Museums Greenwich is gearing up for a series of events that should interest NavListers.
    Ships, Clocks & Stars: The Quest for Longitude
    This major exhibition opens on Friday 11 July and will run until 4 January 2015. It will tour to the USA and Australia after that - more details to follow.
    More information at http://www.rmg.co.uk/whats-on/events/ships-clocks-stars
    There will also be many related exhibitions and events, details of which will appear on http://www.rmg.co.uk/whats-on/longitude
    And in two weeks time we will be hosting a conference with a range of international speakers
    I hope to see some of you in Greenwich.
